Becky and the Birds Debuts “When She Holds Me”

Becky and the Birds, the moniker of Swedish songwriter and producer Thea Gustafsson, returns with the release of new single and video “When She Holds Me”. The new track is a first look at new material from Becky and the Birds and points towards a debut 4AD album due to arrive later this year.

Finding inspiration in the early work of Bon Iver, the ‘For Emma’ intimacy blossoms into lush harmonies and atmospheric soundscapes; the rich instrumentation references previous collaborators Dijon and Lapsley via soft-spoken harmonies and plucked strings. As described by Pitchfork, the sonic world she creates is propelled forward by “a singular, cosmopolitan pop mood that’s at once stylish and vulnerable.”
